Charles Dickens Delights in The Heart of a Child

“Bah,

In a “A Christmas Carol”, crusty Mr. Scrooge, is transformed from a miserable, miserly curmudgeon to a joyful, generous man with the heart of a child.

“Bah," said Scrooge, "Humbug.” Charles Dickens, A Christmas Carol

“For it is good to be children sometimes, and never better than at Christmas, when its mighty Founder was a child Himself.

“I don't know what to do!" cried Scrooge, laughing and crying in the same breath; and making a perfect Laocoön of himself with his stockings. "I am as light as a feather, I am as happy as an angel, I am as merry as a school-boy. I am as giddy as a drunken man. A merry Christmas to every-body! A happy New Year to all the world! Hallo here! Whoop! Hallo!

“... in short, I should have liked, I do confess, to have had the lightest license of a child, and yet to have been man enough to know its value.”

“And it was always said of him, that he knew how to keep Christmas well, if any man alive possessed the knowledge. May that be truly said of us, and all of us! And so, as Tiny Tim observed, God bless Us, Every One!”

“God bless us, every one!”

May we all have the heart of a child this Christmas.
